This little plant is called Dwarf Snowflake and is a Breynia disticha 'nana' , but most of the information I find on this plant calls it a Dwarf Snowbush.
Even the 'nana' is called a snowbush on DG.
Is it called Snowflake because it is a bonsai?????? Can someone enlighten me if you have ever heard it called Snowflake? It was purchased at the Philadelphia, PA Flower Show and marked that way.
Thank you in advance for your comments and suggestions.
Common names are notoriously unreliable & at least in the US are not standardized at all. If most people call it snowbush, someone might remember the snow part but get the other part mixed up and call it snowflake instead. So I doubt the snowflake name has anything to do with it being a bonsai, just inconsistent use of common names.
The name is Breynia disticha 'nana'. Forget about the rest of it. Call it whatever you want. I know people that make up names and the name ends up sticking. The sooner you use the latin name as the only name, the sooner it starts making sense. Just ask Resin.
